Food & Accommodations

LRBC arranges for hot nutritious meals that provide sustenance and are crucial to the well being of a patient and his or her family.

LRBC delivers hundreds of specially prepared, delicious meals every week for a wide variety of recipients. Hospital patients, families in crisis, home bound and elderly individuals, and family members stationed at a patient's bedside regularly receive tasty and home cooked meals that are greatly appreciated. Additionally, LRBC maintains and stocks fifteen food pantries in all the area hospitals, where fresh and packaged foods are available at all times

A medical crisis is a challenge which is made all the more difficult by the stress and discomfort of staying overnight in a hospital lounge or patient's room. To provide relief, Bikur Cholim maintains accommodations at several hospitals, including two hospitality rooms within Jersey Shore Medical Center, one room in Ocean Medical Center, a house next to Kimball Medical Center, and an apartment near Leisure Chateau Care and
Rehabilitation Center. Accommodations are also available at a hospitality house next to Monmouth Medical Center. These comfortable accommodations, which are fully stocked with all the amenities of home, are a respite for families and friends of patients, providing a measure of comfort in a time of crisis.
